Framework partner wins ‘Conservation Award’ for Hub project
NWCH Framework partner, F Parkinson scooped the prestigious ‘Blackpool Council Conservation Award’ at this year’s Blackpool Civic Trust Awards for their work on the Municipal Buildings in Blackpool town centre.
The project consisted of the refurbishment of council offices located on the first and second floor, as well as the addition of a new external lift shaft which has been constructed sympathetic to the building’s heritage. The lift shaft works have been undertaken on a like-for-like basis and traditional materials have been selected throughout to ensure there was a minimal impact on the external appearance of the building.
The project was procured through the North West Construction Hub which was established in 2009 to improve efficiencies and accountability within public sector procurement and the delivery of construction contracts.
The awards evening took place on Friday 27th April 2018 at ‘Viva Blackpool’ and was attended by over 200 guests including the Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayoress of Blackpool.
The Blackpool Civic Trust awards aim to acknowledge schools, community groups and local businesses who contribute to supporting and improving Blackpool.
Ray Eyre, Managing Director at F Parkinson Ltd said:
‘We are delighted to have won this award which is in recognition of the quality workmanship, hard work and commitment of our employees and supply chain partners.’
